Disability Support Services (DSS) is dedicated to providing reasonable curricular and co-curricular accommodations to students with disabilities at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Each year, DSS assists more than 600 students with a variety of disabilities as they pursue their academic disciplines. DSS also has services which students can use to increase skills in learning, time management, and test-taking. Both accommodations and services are offered to students with disabilities who have provided documentation of disability and are approved through the application process.

SIUE values a diverse community and embraces the unique characteristics of students with disabilities. Through community partnerships, academic accommodations, and services to students with disabilities, DSS and SIUE have excelled at the inclusion of all students as they obtain their educational goals.
